Diesel Shop need (Santa Clarita)

Any recommendations of a good diesel shop in Santa Clarita? More specifically, performance focused (ie: exhaust, EGR bypass, tuning, ect.)

Most of the stuff that people do to their trucks for the 6.0 seems pretty straight forward. Just as long as you have an idea on what you are doing, then you should be able to do it yourself. Installing an exhaust is simple. Sometimes time consuming if you dont have proper tools, but overall simple. I dont know too much about diesel tech, but I am going to run the EGR delete. Keep in mind that diesels are getting smogged now, and REQUIRE ALL EMISSION CONTROL EQUIPMENT to be installed, so if you do delete the EGR, then you will either have to find a shady shop, or re-install the egr when you go to get your truck inspected.

b/c the egr delete is the most common thing people remove on these rigs due to the leaking that the cooler gets over time
